Newcastle United are now showing an interest in signing Luis Muriel, and could even start negotiations with Atalanta over a transfer for the Juventus target as soon as this Saturday.
According to TuttoMercatoWEB, Newcastle United are now interested in rivalling Juventus for the transfer of Atalanta striker Luis Muriel. And the Toon could even begin talks over a deal for the Colombia international as soon as Saturday, with Eddie Howe keen on a move.
Juventus have already begun their pursuit of the 31-year-old as Massimiliano Allegri strives to re-establish the Bianconeri as Serie A’s top side. But the Turin powerhouse will not have a clear path to Muriel’s services, with the Magpies now launching their own ambitious bid.
